Side Sill Decals and Interior Trim

I have two quick detail related questions.

1. I've got the m perf side sill decals on my car and I'm curious as to what to use to keep those things clean and in good shape. I know I can wipe them down with soapy water when I wash the car, but is there something I can use to help keep them from cracking/fading and remain in good shape?

2. What do you guys use to clean the aluminium trim and the blue trim stripe inside the car?

Quick detailer. Water for the aluminum.

1Z Cockpit premium for interior .... Just car soap and water for the decals (careful with pressure washers, etc.)

Thanks, guys. I wasn't sure if there was anything special to use on the side sills to keep them from fading or to protect them.

Use a vinyl protectant, Mothers has a good one. You can also give them a permanent coating. For example C.Quartz DLUX.
